When setting goals avoid disappointment, aim low.


« on: March 20, 2018, 07:44:45 PM »

Well I got the deflectors installed last night. A real ass beating. The directions that came with them emphasized how bad they looked from the factory. So I was a little concerned with how they would fit, turns out my gut feeling was right.
Anyway- a big thank you to Hemi Geno for your build thread, page 73 came in handy. The thread does show how the sealant is applied down the side of the windshield against the deflectors. I was wondering if anyone else had some pics of that detail.

Can you post a link to the installation thread please ... about to do the same here, sometimes searching this site doesn't work so well  Roll Eyes

Working around that windshield gasket lockstrip, trying to get the deflector tabs stabbed in there and screwed down is no fun!!  scared

Here are a couple of pre-restoration pictures from the Tiffany Daytona.

Wow, that is ugly. That's one thing I never noticed when checking out Daytona's at Carlisle. I'm debating using some black silicone caulking instead. I think the finished look would be a lot cleaner. I am trying to make the clone look as close to factory as possible but I'm  having  a hard time with that.

True ! It was the KISS principle !!! Keep it simple stupid logic . No mighty putty or flex seal , simple screws on front like superbird ! And when two screws aren't enough add more

This is one area where I decided to believe that the workers at Creative were NOT sniffing glue that day and did a half-way decent job of it  lol

Also, a new seal is very pliable.
